Air France is resuming its non-stop service to Seattle, taking the airline’s network to North American destinations. The flight service will be re-launched between Seattle– Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) from November 8, 2021. The flight schedule on this route is set to operate three days a week, i.e., Monday, Thursday, and Saturday, to be served by Airbus A350-900 on the CDG-SEA route.
The aircraft has a total seating capacity of 324, of which 34 seats are designated to business-class passengers, 24 will be the Premium cabin, and the rest are economy cabins. In-flight entertainment options and Wi-Fi connectivity will be available onboard to cater to passengers’ needs for maintaining connection while in the sky. Air France will serve the rebounding demands on Seattle this winter and operate the flights in connection with joint venture partner Delta Air Lines. The flight will cover a distance of 5029 miles, with a total flight duration of over 10 hours.
Air France will resume its flight services to US cities of Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC during the 2021-22 winter seasons. However, the flight schedule is subject to change as travel restrictions might be imposed on later days.
The carrier has also announced to increase its flight capacity to Los Angeles International airport by adding two weekly flights between Paris and Los Angeles to reach 17 weekly flights on the route, starting November 1.
Air France believes Seattle to be an important gateway for flight resumption because of its booming economy and natural outdoor beauty.
Following an absence of over months, Air France is once again flying to the skies of Seattle in an initial schedule of 3 flights per week. France recently welcomed the fully vaccinated and COVID- negative tested tourists. So, Americans will soon be able to witness and enjoy the attractions of Paris this winter. Air France bringing back their flights to Seattle Tacoma will benefit Americans waiting to travel to Paris. The Seattle flight service will cater to the intense demands from Americans and complement Delta’s flight between Seattle and Paris operated by wide-body aircraft. The airline aims to win over American travelers who are hungry for safe outdoor travel after vaccination efficacy has soared and pandemic wanes.
